CAB ReviewFull Text

Increasing global population combined with a changing climate is placing pressure on global plant production systems, and rapid leafy and woody plant improvement is required to meet the demands of the future. Conventional breeding is time-consuming, especially in woody plants, and potential new...

Many staple food crops, such as banana, cassava, potato, sweet potato, sugarcane, taro, yam, are propagated vegetatively. Crop improvement using vegetative propagules has special challenges compared with breeding of seed propagated species. Genetic variability is a fundamental necessity for crop...

Animal diseases are a significant source of lost revenue in livestock production systems. Reduction and control of diseases has traditionally been done under three management programs: eradication by test and slaughter, vaccination, and use of antibiotics. However, inadequate efficacy of vaccines...

The rapid drop in cost and increase in throughput of nucleic acid sequencing has provided many opportunities for aquaculture genetics and breeding. Genome-wide genetic marker data can now be readily generated in a cost-effective manner, even for species without extensive prior genomic tools. The...

The prediction of complex or quantitative traits from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes has transformed livestock and plant breeding, and is also playing an increasingly important role in prediction of human disease. Genomic predictions are made using a prediction equation derived from ...

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...
